Father's Day

15 Father-Son Quotes to Make Dad Smile on Father’s Day

From the day a little boy is born, there’s a special, unbreakable bond between him and his dad. It can be difficult to describe just how amazing that relationship is, but these father-son quotes are delightful reminders of that connection—especially as Father’s Day quickly approaches. Throughout your life, your father has been much more than just a “dad”—he’s a role model, friend, and leader too. These funny Father’s Day quotes perfectly show just how thankful you are that he was truly able to do it all. Your dad will be instantly moved once he reads these thoughtful sayings on his special day. This year, you may not be able to spend the holiday with your father in person, which will make your Father’s Day message even more meaningful.

Jot down one of these famous quotes in a Father’s Day card so dad can treasure the note forever. If he absolutely insists he doesn’t need anything (we have a gift guide for dads who want nothing too!), think about making him some of these Father’s Day breakfast ideas that everyone in the family can enjoy. Whether it’s his first Father’s Day, your stepfather, or he’s been celebrating the holiday for many years, he’ll appreciate anything from his best buddy—his son.
